Nothing to Snicker About – Snickerdoodles

Posted by casey on September 15, 2009 in In The Kitchen, Sweet Treats

Growing up, I had a favorite cookie and it was the Snickerdoodle.  I think it was partly because of its name, I mean how can you not love the name.  Now though, I have moved on from the name alone and really appreciate how simple and mild it is.  A mild cookie means you can eat more of them because they aren’t overpowering or so sweet that they hurt your teeth.  So ladies and gents, I bring you another family recipe – the Snickerdoodle.  It is a great everyday cookie, but the cinnamon also makes it a delicious treat around the holidays!



Preheat oven to 400 Degrees



1 cup shortening

1 ½ cups sugar

2 eggs

2 ¾ cups flour

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

                                                                                ½ teaspoon salt



Cream the shortening and sugar.  Add eggs and mix.

Sift together the dry ingredients.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture.

Roll in balls.

Roll in cinnamon sugar.

Place on ungreased cookie sheets.


Bake at 400 Degrees for 10 minutes.
